Is it a new thing? Looks interesting.

Just kidding. I love when AICN reviews RPGs and shit.

keep this up, i love board games i've looked at Descent and have been wanting to get it, me and my friends play Arkham Horror which is an awesome H.P. Lovercraft Call of Cthulhu board game, and Tide Of Iron which is a kick ass WW2 board game, Last Night on Earth which is the greatest zombie board game i've ever played, and Mystery of the Abbey which is kind of like clue but better. there are more and better board games then just nascar monopoly, life, and sorry.

I haven't really delved into board games such as these. What is the replay factor on them? When I think of board/card games, I think of there are only so many options you can do before you start repeating actions or something. <p> My favorite board game was Axis and Allies. We used to play that for hours.

This sounds great! But how does it compare to Talisman? The OG not the newer one that came out a couple of years ago?

How does it compare to Monopoly? Fucking nerd, get some balls and move out of your Mother's basement.

When you role for a save from Manilow's butt bang power, do you check against Astley's lame ass old joke boost?

That's called a Maniroll, and you get a +1 to saves against it if you possess the "Do not trust blind links" feat.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Nov. 26, 2008, 7:20 p.m. CST
common, post some pics of these games your talking about. It would help break up the loong paragraphs and at least let us see what your talking about. You guys post tons of posters/vids/trailers and everything else, this area should get the same attention. Not links to Barry Manillow.

Don't. Don't look at it, don't ask about it. It's like meth, it ruins lives. Young promising lives, snuffed out because some bastard exposed them to Warhammer 40k.
Nov. 26, 2008, 10:25 p.m. CST
...I love the hell out of Arkham Asylum. Great production values for all FFG's stuff.

If you haven't played this, you should. It adds a campaign mode, plus shortens the dungeons to play in less than two hours. Perfect for evening play over a long period of time, with maybe some long weekend days to compensate. We had a game going for a looong time. Also, you should link to the homepage for the game and the BoardGameGeek page for these games when you review them. Lots of information at both places.

I got into Warhammer 40k when the Tyranid expansion just came out. The local hobby/comic shop used to do painting sessions every Thursday and I still remember trying to paint details on a figure 1/4" tall using a brush made from a single hair. When they'd break out the big board and do 3 or 4 player free-for-all though, it was well worth it.<p> Now I live in the middle of nowhere and the only comic/hobby store is 40 minutes away and sells no miniatures. My swarm has about 13 years of dust on it and I've got a binder of photocopied rule books (which was how we infringed copyrights pre-internet).

Your sentiment resonates with what a lot of folks have told me: that Warhammer 40K is *fun* no question, but it eats up lots of time and $$$. It's still awfully tempting... :-) My big thing is Classic Battletech. Right now it's enjoying serious renaissance (in spite of WizKids getting shuttered).

Hey Massa, I'm digging these table top reviews. I'd love to hear your thoughts on some White Wolf stuff. Hunter the Vigil looks cool, but I'm not sure.
Nov. 27, 2008, 3:22 p.m. CST
And in this single instance I think it'd be appreciated. There's no way I have any time or friends to play this kind of thing with, but I am very curious how it looks.

Since Massawyrm's being a jerk: http://boardgamegeek.com/game/17226. And Descent's no Warhammer Quest (which unfortunately is out of print).

Remove the space in my link above; I'm not sure how that happened.

Sounds like a good substitute for getting unwary visitors (on a Friday) to start playing something cool when DnD might be too, uhm, overwhelming... Like a gateway drug... Your reviews rock... AICN Tabletop is the coolest part of the site.
